Charity and Justice - St Mary MacKillop and Australian Society
This recent publication by Professor John Warhurst builds on the 2011 Melbourne conference on Mary MacKillop and her influence on Catholic social services. It was launched on Monday 12 November by Professor Anne Hunt, Executive Dean of Theology and Philosophy at the Australian Catholic University.
for a copy of Anne's remarks at the launch, on the theme of sainthood.
In the booklet, Professor Warhurst has reflected that ‘Mary’s life and work resonates with contemporary issues: how to serve, how to build partnerships with others, how to advocate for justice and the poor in the public square and how to speak to all Australians confident in our Catholic mission.’ He quotes Cardinal George Pell, in his homily at St Mary’s canonisation: Mary’s example and teachings – about forgiveness, about resisting hardness of heart, and about working to overcome evil, refusing to be disheartened or defeated by it – speak to women and men well beyond our shores and in all ages.
for a summary of this booklet, published by the Australian Catholic Social Justice Council;
for a recent reflection on the feast and Mary's legacy in social services and work for justice; and visit this
